Tory Sinclair could not believe she let
her best friends talk her into playing a version of the Dating
Game at a local bar called Ozzy’s. Tory doesn’t need another
useless date with Mr. Wrong, but she is about to find out Mr.
Wrong is actually Mr. Right.
Gabe Matheson couldn’t refuse to
participate in a charity event, after all that’s what most
major NFL quarterbacks did, right? He just hoped he would
have some dignity left after playing in a Dating Game. How
hard can it be to pick a date for one weekend? Gabe was about
to find out since the girl he picks is someone that left him
without any explanation five years earlier.
Now thrown together in an awkward
situation, Gabe and Tory must discover if the flickering flame
of love they felt for each other years ago still burns. Can
Tory reveal to Gabe the reasons she had for leaving him? Can
Gabe forgive the one girl he really cared about even after she
left him with a shattered heart? Can they rekindle a love
that was so strong and passionate in a weekend and realize
that they are exactly what the other needs?
The Last Thing I Wanted,
was a very cute story about, what if? We’ve all wondered at
one time or another how our lives would have turned out if we
would have pursued the “one that got away”. Gabe and Tory’s
characters were very passionate, but the relationship in the
story seemed rushed to get them together and just give them
the “happily ever after” ending. The Last Thing I
Wanted, overall was a good read, I just felt the main
characters could have been better developed.
